DaggerXL is a Modern Daggerfall Engine Recreation for current Operating Systems and hardware – essentially it is a remake in the spirit of a port. It will ultimately fully emulate the game of Daggerfall and then optionally enhance it by refining existing features and adding new gameplay elements that were originally intended. The game will make use of hardware acceleration providing higher resolutions, color depth, greatly improved visibility, better texture filtering, enhanced performance and more. In addition DaggerXL will support full modability, similar to more modern Elder Scrolls games, using custom tools.

Report article RSS Feed October 29, 2013 - Loading Save Games

As I discussed in previous updates, I have the cell loading code in place. Prior to that I already had the save/load menu fully functional, except for the actual saving and loading – selecting saves, sounds, double-clicking, etc.. So now its time to put those things together and fully support the Daggerfall save games.

As I discussed in previous updates, I have the cell loading code in place. Prior to that I already had the save/load menu fully functional, except for the actual saving and loading – selecting saves, sounds, double-clicking, etc.. So now its time to put those things together and fully support the Daggerfall save games.

Here is a screenshot of the menu, I’ve shown this screen before but ;) You’ll see my current save games, which are different then last time – and setup to make testing different kinds of areas easier. And, of course, this is taken from my DaggerfallDOS executable – where I test the reverse engineered code as-is before moving (with refactoring and/or rewritting) into DaggerXL.

DaggerfallDOS_Load2

Currently I’m working on parsing the faction data in faction.c and then loading the appropriate faction data from the save. I’ve already gone through most of the other setup – clearing out object links, deleting existing *.atf and *.amf files from the arena2/ folder, copying those files from the current save folder to arena2/, as well as copying rumor.dat, bio.dat, mapsave.sav. I’ve also loaded in all the data from savevars.dat.

Once that is complete I’ll start by making sure I can load various dungeons – I’ll be sure to show some in-dungeon screenshots when I that is done, then work on exterior and interiors. Once one type of area is fully functional, all areas of that type should be. Then I can start connecting completed pieces together (and completing pieces as needed) to get a fully functional game – quests, faction data, etc.
